    Before sending your children out to trick or treat tonight, state police urge moms and dads to check the sex offender registry.

    The state sex offender registry lists 5,593 offenders and a search will help determine which houses or areas to avoid while planning your trick or treating route.

    To determine where offenders are in your area, you can type in your address and search for a radius between a quarter mile and five miles.
